Chelsie Livingston and Seiling FFA Going Whole Hog for Food Drive at 2011 Oklahoma Youth Expo

Fri, 18 Mar 2011 7:45:49 CDT

Chelsie Livingston and Seiling FFA Going Whole Hog for Food Drive at 2011 Oklahoma Youth Expo The Food Drive being promoted by the Diamond Hats group at the 2011 Oklahoma Youth Expo will be more than just canned beans and corn- as what will end up going to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma will be several hundred packages of fresh ground pork produced by some of the exhibitors of the Youth Expo.

For the past couple of years, Chelsie Livingston of the Seiling FFA Chapter has donated her show pig to the local food pantry if it does not qualify for any premium sales. When the Seiling Chapter Advisor Ben Fisher heard that the Diamond Hats had organized a food drive in cooperation with the office of Governor Mary Fallin for those coming to the Oklahoma Youth Expo, their chapter decided they would try to find corporate sponsors to pay for the processing and donate six pigs from the Seiling FFA to the Food Drive.

Livingston tells us that could result in nine hundred to a thousand pounds of fresh pork, packaged in one and a half pound sizes, enough to feed a family of four.

We talked with Chelsie Livingston during the special girls event, "This One's From the Girls" that was organized and sponsored by the Diamond Hats. You can hear that conversation with Chelsie by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.

By the way- we are adding pictures of the ladies event and more from Tuesday onto our FLICKR picture site- Click here to go see our pictures from the 2011 Oklahoma Youth Expo as seen on FLICKR.
